Sara Sloan knows we’re overscheduled. But as owner of Sloan Fitness and Personal Training, based in Delray Beach (419-779-1832), she believes there’s always time for wellness. Surely, we can spare 60 seconds.
“The choices we make in that one minute really have a domino effect on the rest of our day,” she says, explaining that the well-being we feel from stretching can inspire us to choose a salad instead of fried food at lunch—which might, in turn, make us take the stairs instead of the elevator later in the day. “Sometimes we’re in such a hurry or we’re so busy that we don’t stop and think of the impact that one small decision can have on our health,” Sloan says.
A quick meditation or a regimen of squats with a bicep curl are great ways to make the most of a spare moment. “People are so busy; they don’t make their health a priority. You need to schedule time for it, the way you would a meeting,” Sloan says.
